Digital Arts

CAN’s digital arts programme supported groups, artists and community activists who were already using digital technology for a wide range of artistic & cultural purposes. The programme also supported those communities who had less access to digital technology.

Programmes have included:

  • Digital arts creative production
  • Training in the use of digital technology
  • Development of online promotional tools for events and artists
  • Showcasing & screening events
  • Research & development opportunities for artists & creatives
  • Partnerships with the wider arts & media sector

CAN ran First Person, the culmination of a week-long collaborative filmmaking process, using Filmonik‘s intensive, part jam, part creative boot-camp, filmmaking methods.

We also ran two rounds of a project entitled Do I.T.  – a training course for artists & creatives who were unemployed or working less than 8 hours a week and wanted to increase their online profile.

Digital Sparks was a digital media project highlighting the issues that effect the homeless community in Rochdale through a series of short films.
